Dragon Hillclimb – Date Change!
The May 5 & 6 dates that were planned for the Chasing the Dragon Hillclimb had to be changed. The Minis on the Gap were on the same weekend and accommodations were booked out from Fontana area to Robbinsville. That meant if the date was kept, our drivers, workers and spectators would be forced to stay further from the event and it would not help Robbinsville Tourism. Central Carolinas Region officers worked with Robbinsville and Graham County to find a better date for our event.
The asphalt repairs will be finished by June 1st and the roads and guard rail areas will be trimmed and cleaned the Thursday before the event! We have some other surprises this year you will enjoy so make your plans now to attend. We are expecting double the drivers and double the spectators… this means you need to book your accommodations early as possible. The following link shows hotels/ motels and rentals available in the area. (Be sure to press where it says “Click here” for campgrounds, hotels, resorts, etc.) Please look closely at descriptions to be certain they are close to Santeetlah and Robbinsville areas.The rental rates for many of the cabins and chalet rentals are $125 to $175 per night and can sleep 6 to 8. We strongly recommend groups going in together on these deals!
